journal and government executive for inviting me to this year's a cyber security summit because i can think of no more urgent topic in today's interconnected world. the cyber domain is woven into the fabric of our daily lives. while this increased productivity has led to significant transformations and advances across our country and around the world, it has increased the importance. the flip side of all the good that comes from the internet is that cyber attacks have increased over the next decade. here is a quick sense of scale. last year, u.s. computer emergency readiness team that surprise -- provides response for the federal civilian part of of the partners, last year, the u.s. responded to more than 106,000 incident reports and released more than 5000 actionable cyber security alerts. specialized teams for vulnerable and industrial systems. the words cyber security encompasses a broad range of malicious activity from the nile of service attacks to the theft of intellectual property to intrusions' against the government that works. last year, a water plant for a small town in tex
states as well. i have a jobs plan. we need to back government away from small business, need to have government reduce regulations that are such a burden on businesses so they can create jobs. we need to reform the tax code. we need to reduce energy costs. we need to help small businesses to create those opportunities. >> senator kerrey, you have 30 seconds. >> senator fischer signed a pledge that would require you should pay the same taxes employees pay. under your balanced budget, unemployment would double. i have examined the amendment, and it would double unemployment. >> i disagree. with regard to the buffet rule, if you are going to tax every millionaire, that can run the government for 17 hours. let's look for businesses to create jobs and make opportunities in the state, and we can do it by reducing regulations, by having an energy plan, by repealing "obamacare." >> the next question. >> a question in this cycle is, are we better at today than we were four years ago? are we? >> no, we are not better off with our economy, with our position in the world. we have seen a failure
. it is not about israel or america. it is about their dissatisfaction with their own government. that is something the government will have a hard time making go away. melissa: walid, why do you say it is america's response and israel's response that make as difference. >> i didn't say the united states. i didn't say israel because they're locked in almost military conflict and intelligence conflict with the irrainsian. the united states as leader of free world has opportunity now. iran this may be one of the wave to come it is not final wave of course. after egypt, after tunisia after the other models in syria and libya there is possibility for the united states to encourage basically the iranian people to continue with demonstration. >> how? >> or repeat of 2009 when the administration said we don't want to meddle, have nothing to do with it. melissa: what do they do to encourage it? >> we're seeing representatives of the opposition, if the opposition organizes. second we aggrandize their message. thirdly, depend how the events take place inside iran we may take this to the international communi
. the government add 1.3 trillion in the fiscal year that ended . worked out to 11,000 more to the household is the fourth straight year of 1 trillion dollars. these numbers are so mind boggling. the national debt is over 16 trillion dollars and that will no doubt with a big topic. >> brian: they had it on the nightly news and sean hannity in you could stand up. they were able to play a tape. the tape has been out but president obama in hampton university addressing an audience of a thousand and it was right in the wake of katrina and we all know what happened on katrina. >> steve: we certainly do. it will be interesting tonight will the moderator of the presidential debate will ask mr. romney about the 47 comment. will they ask about this particular video that shows then senator obama showing that the neglect of new orleans was racial. >> down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later. there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the staford act and when you get federal matter you have to give a 10 percent match from the
in state government debts as well. now my final number: $50,000 is the median household income. so, we owe $12,000 more than we make. that means as a nation what we owe now exceeds what we have. that also means even if you confiscate all that we make every penny of its you would not come close to covering what we spend, any of it. that is the issue the guys should be hammering tomorrow night, how vulnerable we are. the guy would lays it out would not just be reframing the debate but setting off a firestorm. but one that need not concern him or us. as the fine of the mind in both political parties have told me, and, yes, there are still quite a few, to quote a certain vice presidential candidate, we can do this. listen to two guys on my fox business network show, which if you don't get you should demand, last night, retired democratic senator sam nunn and former republican senator bob bennett appears jointly on fox business network. each offering relatively modest proposals to fix this mess. listen closely. >> we particularly have to discuss, frankly, with the american people, that the enti
it, "obama's other speech. the barely recognizable obama." claims government spends too much on suburbs, not quote, our earlier neighborhood. here now with remarks on how response to hurricane katrina differed from hurricane andrew and for 9/11 attacks. >> down in new orleans where they have not rebuild a year later, there's money you can get from the government called the staff ford act. and basically it says when you get federal money, you have to give a 10% local match. the government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to come up with a dollar. now here's the thing, when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waved the safford act saying we can't ask new york city to rebuild. they said, here's $10 and that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money. here's the money to rebuild. we are not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. >> what's happening down in new
that to? >> i think we are at a fiscal and economic cliff. i think we have pursued government spending programs that have created a debt that is out of control. at the convention come after talking, i went home to my hotel at 1:30 a.m. and i was looking on my iphone at twitter. and the comedian paula pound stone had sent a tweet that evening. i don't know her, but she said " ted cruz just said that, when his daughter was born, the debt was $5 trillion and now it is $16 trillion. what the heck did she do?" [laughter] >> you think the debt is putting the nation in crisis. >> along with government spending, is causing the dead. we have seen a growing expansion in the power of the federal government. it is crippling small businesses. >> you are the national co-chair of the obama-bided campaign. >> i would put the challenge that we have as a nation in a different context. and say that, to the extent that we are a nation in "crisis," although i would not describe it as that because i believe that we can fundamentally overcome this and that we can do it in a fairly rational and reasonable way
've seen so far, indicate about the approach to management and governance. today with a simple and outstanding panel of speakers to help us analyze these questions. jon huntsman is a past presidential candidate, so he has a lot of authenticity to discuss these leadership questions. but if i know anything about the subject matter i wouldn't be here today. [laughter] >> we are still please you are here. >> the important discussion today. >> many of you know that jon huntsman was elected governor of utah in 2004, when he compiled a very distinguished record. he oversaw major tax and health care reform and also major improvements in public education. following his service as governor he was appointed by president obama as the ambassador to china in 2009. he left that position to run for president and gained tremendous respect for his forthright discussion of important policy challenges. this fall, governor huntsman actually joined the brookings institution as a distinguished fellow, so we are pleased to call in our colleague. bart gordon is a practicing attorney and partner at k&l
debates later on. maybe you two can negotiate that. if you cut government benefits -- a secretly recorded video of mitt romney at a private fund- raiser was made public -- let's take a look. >> 47% of the people -- who will vote for the president a matter what. who believe the government has responsibility to care for them. who believe they are entitled to health care and food and housing, you name it. that is an entitlement. >> texas -- in 2010, 30.5% of texans filing era -- return paid no income tax. there is no data on how many texans get government assistance, but the census bureau found 24% get social security. 20 -- 14% did retirement income. 5% disability bed -- benefits and 14% from strands. mr. cruz, do you believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power
of this, there also will be political pressure on the swiss government by the e.u., particularly the french and germans, to get them to kind of close this, this loophole. melissa: yeah. >> it will always be an uphill climb and sanctions aren't perfect. right now they appear to be having some effect. melissa: we're talking about this today because of course the iranian president is here in new york making his speech in front of the u.n. at the same time we're watching that, that we're reading that iran being able to sell this oil and it makes americans and our viewers feel like we're not getting any traction on the front of trying to slow down iran from getting nuclear capability. what do you think is the best thing that the u.s. and the u.n. could do right now that we're not doing? >> ahmadinejad of course is a lame duck and in any event the theocracy, the mullahs in tehran are the ones that really control the future of the country and they don't appear to be weakening in materials of their position. melissa: no. >> so i think that we really have to, of course continue these sanc
with the social media. it is fair to say that the chinese government said several times in a press conference and to foreign delegates that vice- president shi was injured in his back. i think that is enough. more importantly, i was interviewed many times by the media. i say i do not want to comment. there is nothing happening. they would cancel their trip. the police and the military would react unusual. there is no sign whatsoever. it seems like it is very odd that the chinese government is not famous for transparency. they sometimes want to cover things. but also ironically because of the vulnerability that doctor kissinger mention, they face a lot of challenges. for this problem, a successor is in big trouble. they were immediately announced -- you cannot cover. it is a huge liability and would cause further damage for the political system. no leader will be able to do that. usually they will reveal to the public within 12 hours. this is my take. this should be a lesson for us. i'm not defending the chinese government. china needs to follow to be responsible. he is already paralyzed and c
: iranian government slamming the obama administration for taking ago iranian militant group off the u.s. terrorism list, the group began as a guerrilla movement during the iranian revolution and fought along side saddam hussein's forces in the 80s dismantled after the united states led invasion in 2003. the state department says mek has not committed an act of terror for than a decade iran claim the u.s. is using the group to work against its government. >> rick: tracking severe weather hitting texas. heavy rain and risk of dangerous flash flooding will spread across a large part of that state today. some areas could see as much as six inches of rain, a lot . forcasters say large amounts of moisture are coming from the gulf of mexico and from storms in the pacific and warn the downpours could last all weekend, into monday. >> arthel: all right football fans, rejoice! nfl referee lockout over. refs approving new eight year deal with the league, ending the three-month ordeal. both sides quickly reaching agreement after replacement refs drew complaints from fans and even president obama.
perspective when it comes to the tune of government than i do. i think you believe that government is the wherewithal for what we need in this country. i do not. i believe in private enterprise, private responsibility, but i thank you for your service. welcome for that service. i respect that she is a mother, a rancher, a small business person. i think she is campaigning in all three of those things they have a great deal of respect for what she did on a school board and a legislature. you are always putting yourself at risk. we have fundamental disagreements. the negative advertising, in one year and -- on you have to do is avoid watching television is not a bad option. what she just said is not true. i started a business in nebraska, and the first thing i had to do to start our business must get a permit from the city office, talk to the county, the state. i understand that government does not create jobs. i understand you've got to be careful with taxes and regulation to make that hpen. thats political rhetoric in my view, and it does not resemble the facts. she said it is diffu
, claims the government spends too much on suburbs, not enough on "our neighborhoods." earlier, we played the clip about where he praised jeremiah wright. and now the difference of the response of hurricane katrina to hurricane andrew. >> down in new orleans, there is a federal law called the stafford act. the local government has to give a match. here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waved the stafford act. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. and that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, they said look at this devastation, don't expect you to put that money in. what's happening in new orleans? where is your dollar, where is your stafford act money? makes no sense. tells me the but let hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> president obama, that was five years ago. decide for yourself whether this shows a side of barack obama never been seen before as the daily caller suggestsor nothing new. the president seems to be speaking at a difference cadence and
with occupying forces and the israeli government. the settler is attack should not surprise anyone, for it is the inherent code on the continuation of occupation anti-dormant policy that deems the satisfaction to be the absolute priority. it is that isreali curriculum and extremist opinions that are ripe with hatred and are rooted in discriminatory laws created and enacted over the years against the palestinian people, as well as by the security apparatus which provide excuse after excuse for the accelerated -- the fabricate excuses for soldiers who have committed what are clearly considered crimes and acts of murder, torture, and abuse. over the past year since the convening of the general assembly's previous assembly, the occupying insisted -- it is a campaign aimed at altering the mankind.s it is a campaign of ethnic cleansing against the palestinian people via demolition of their homes and prevention of their construction and residency rights and the denial of basic .ervices and schools they took the city and prevent millions of palestinians from 3 accessing its schools, church
they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it, it's an entitlement and the government should give it to them and they will vote for this president no matter what. >> a new poll finds 54% of all voters have an unfavorable view of romney's comments and 57% of independents feel the same way. that's a big reason why romney is in so much trouble in ohio and no republican has ever won the white house without winning the state. but when asked about how losing ohio would affect the electoral map, romney's campaign response said, i prefer to look at the map hol lift clee. he wants to look at the map holistically? how about realistically? president obama is trying to seal the deal. >> values are hard work and personal responsibility, those values that we believe in don't just belong to workers or businesses or the rich or the poor, the 53% or the 47%, the 1% or the 99%. those are american values. and if you're with me and if you work with me, we'll win what county again. we'll win ohio again. we'll finish what we started. we'll remind the world why the united states of america is the g
businesses know that the government is not going to pull the rug out from under them. talk to a small-business person, a manufacturer, someone holding on a hoping they do not have to lay off the next round of people. they see regulation after regulation coming from washington. they have no idea what it will cost them. they are worried about going forward because of hidden costs. then they see our president promising the top tax rate on small businesses goes to about 40%. that only pays for 8% of his proposed deficit spending. overseas, where i come from, that means make superior. we both live near canada. the canadians have this figured out. other countries have this figured out. canadians lowered taxes on businesses to 15%. president obama wants the tax rate on our successful small businesses and job creators above 40%. when we tax our job creators at much higher tax rates than foreign competitors, we went -- we win and they lose. we do not want to tax the small businesses. we want them to hire more people. that is essential. none of this is going to work, no business will be confide
the people. this is the way the framers of the constitution intended our government to be, a government that comes from the people. over time we have developed a government that comes at the people, that comes from the top down, where the people are more or less treated as objects to be programmed during the campaign with commercials and media events and fear messages and personal attacks and things of that nature. the thing that separates my candidacy and makes it unique is that this came from millions of people in 50 states all over this country who wanted a candidate that worked and belonged to nobody but them. i go into this race as their servant, and i belong to them. so this comes from the people. >> governor clinton, a one minute response. >> the most important distinction in this campaign is that i represent real hope for change, a departure from trickle-down economics, a departure from tax and spend economics, to invest in growth. but before i can do that, i must challenge the american people to change, and they must decide. tonight i say to the president: mr. bush, for 12 year
in afghanistan and no evidence that the american plan to hand over to a credible, stable afghan government will work. these village elders tell me once u.s. troops leave, a civil war will begin and u.s.-trained afghan forces will not be able to stop it. >> are you preparing for this fight? are you already stockpiling weapons and ammunition and getting yourself ready? yes, we are, we will definitely fight, he says. and what about the afghan government? it's meaningless here, they say. you think it's possible that the taliban will try and come back. yes, they will, he says. it makes a decade's work of american battles seem futile. it wasn't always like this. >> the united states military has begun strikes. >> at first, the war had momentum. and a clear purpose. al qaeda with bases in afghanistan attack the united states on 9/11. just three months later, the u.s. drove the taliban from power, al qaeda and osama bin laden were on the run. it was done with a few hundred cia officers, special forces, and air power. a quick victory. but not decisive. >> that was nbc's richard engel reporting. and
administration withheld crucial information about the u.s. consulate attack on purpose. one government agency is taking responsibility is this just the white house trying to cover up the coverup. >> for get state and federal taxes. if the united nations gets its way the united states tax me g.e.d.en could go global. >> just how friendly are our skies? "fox & friends" begins right now. snet ♪ >> good saturday morning, everyone. welcome in to "fox & friends" on this early fall morning. coming up in just about a half an hour we are going to talk about whether or not spanking should be considered a form of child abuse. one state is actually moving, perhaps, to make it that way. you could be locked up as a result of it. >> looking forward to that debate. we will answer that question. which one of us three is the funniest reporter in new york? we'll not give you any clues. >> no clues. >> i said no -- >> more on that later on in the program. >> meanwhile the top story, the news that has consumed us for the better part of two weeks now. that is what happened in benghazi? why was the message coming
much the u.s. and libyan governments knew about the growing threat from al qaeda and militias in eastern libya. >> all members of the formulation relations committee, both democrat and republican, are asking for answers. this is now something that can never be covered as partisan. these are concerns from senators and house members who want to know what is happening. >> one source says that benghazi had weapons and coordination. three days after the attack, the cia director, david petraeus, he found that benghazi was a demonstration prompted by the youtube video that spun out of control. ahead of the homeland committee telling fox, he has a deep respect for the cia director and will not discuss classified information but something is profoundly wrong. something tells us that this was caused primarily by the video and that terrorist influence was minimum. >> that was a mentioning of the video is any kind of catalyst at the compound. megyn: catherine herridge, thank you so much. later in the show, we will ask if the deadly attack in libya is this election season's surprise. simil
government. first, to turn to the defense of marriage act and proposition 8 cases -- i will talk about doma cases for it. first, for some history on doma, it was passed in 1996 and has two main sections from only one is really at issue in section 2 is about trying to protect states from being forced to recognized marriage in other states. the section that deals with the defense of marriage for federal purposes, federal law, federal taxes, a whole host of bedroll laws. it says, for the purpose of federal law, the word marriage means of a legal union between one man and one woman, husband and wife, and spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex. that is the section of the law that president obama has declined to defend. at the house, they have created the bipartisan legal adviser group that is during the defense of these laws since the administration has advocated its role in defending it. -- has abdicated its role in defending it. there are several cases that have petitions for the court to decide amongst. the first one, probably the front runner, is a combination case of massachuset
million to the new government in egypt which is run by the brotherhood. this proposal comes to congress at a point when the u.s.-egypt rip has never been under more scrutiny and rightly so. i am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and i cannot support it at this time as chair of the subcommittee i have placed a hold on these funds. earlier in the week, in new york. secretary of state hillary clinton mentioned this month want riots in egypt and context of the ongoing arab spring. she made clear in a state department's estimation right now. the way to calm down these protesters is to secure the country, in part, with money. the recent riots and protests throughout the region have brought the challenge of transition into sharp relief. extremists are clearly determined to hijack these reforms and revolutions to it further their ageneral does and ideology so our partnership must empower those that would see their nations emerge as true democracy. >> back in september all the foreign aid conference shed said they would send to egypt was contingent on supporting a democratic g
additional grantsrom the government. had a whe position done is to a white crowd saying a whit president was denying sectio a white part of the community, the press wld be tearing h alive. me ask trent lock. >> areyou saying is also the way esidt obama w speaking at raises eyebrows forou and this shows prent obama iy h regularly porays himself? >> anderson, i'mfrom louisiana, if i were talking to you the way i talk t friends back home, you woul't be abo understand me. >> my dad is mississippi, so i did go a mississippi reunion. >> george bush sounded more uthern below the mason/dixon line. politicians on both sis do that. i fault pandering politician. >> roland, wha do you this ideo? i think is utterly laughable that sean hannity a the rest of the folks make this out to something something thatas written on ne 7th, 6v2007, on, was a column i wrote wh the headline called "obama's quiet ots are real." so they want to -- >> quiet riot is a phrase he was using in thism[ very speech. >> no, but my point is i w referencing the speech that he alsoave to the hampton ministers conferen
of government and leadership/governing style. and by a pretty wide margin going in right now, the voters expect president obama is going to outdebate his opponent, but both men have taken great pains to downplay their own chances, downplay the expectations. our dan lothian is up very early at the university of denver. and, dan, i understand this is the fourth time that these two men have really ever encountered one another in person. is that expected to have any effect when they meet each other on stage? >> well, certainly this is not someone who the president spent time with in the senate, has not spent a lot of time talking to him, and when they debate tonight, for 90 minutes, it will be the most time and the longest time that they have spent interacting at all. so it is an unusual, i guess, setting if you will for the president and governor mitt romney. but nonetheless, they're getting ready for this big event, the last couple of days they have been doing these mock debates, going through every possible question that will be asked, every possible scenario that will be thrown their way. so th
government, i think that's going to hurt him. and ultimately i think that people in this country believe that barack obama is looking out for their interests, for their economic interests and for their future. >> it is clear where you stand politically. i don't want to ask you who you want to win, but honestly, who do you think will win tonight? >> i think on style i think right now i have to give the points to mitt romney. i think he's very well practiced. he's been apparently memorizing the zingers. i think he'll be very relaxed. when it comes to the substance, i think we'll have barack obama. so ultimately the people are going to have to choose who wins tonight. >> shannon o'brien, thank you very much. thanks for taking a trip down memory lane with me back to 2002. we appreciate it. >>> just ahead, new information and images following that deadly attack at the u.s. consulate in libya, benghazi, which killed four americans including the u.s. ambassador. up next, an exclusive look at where ambassador christopher stevens spent his final moments. s to supply affordable, cleaner energy, wh
the government as a two party government. that is how i think it should stay. third parties -- they have never made an impact in elections. i do not think they are relevant at all. i want to thank you for letting me get -- this is my first time in years i have gotten on c- span. host: we are glad to hear from me. caller: know, i do not think they are relevant. host: next is shannon from missouri. are you a member of a third party? caller: yes. you get disgruntled with you hear people like bill oreilly and sean hannity saying ron paul can't win. it every time he gets up to speak he draws a bigger crowds then obama or romney. the motion is amazing. i run into so many people -- you always hear they cannot win. if they could get more coverage other than c-span, c-span are the only people that are fair to third-party people compared to fox or cnn or ms nbc or any of the other ones. i wish more people would watch c-span and educate themselves to receive more votes. host: thank you for the call. one of your saying -- as we said earlier, ross perot sitting down for his first extended interview in many
of millions of dollars, set up better health care networks for the poor. i believe if the federal government would have a lot granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, and done away with all the strings and the mandate, i could've effectively oversee the delivery of health care to the fore. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health-care business completely , give it up to the states, in this case, block grants that balance revenues and expenditures, and that is how we ever get out of this. giving it up to the states, 50 laboratories of innovation and best practices, that is exactly what we will have. we will have some fabulous success and some horrible failure. failure of lincoln avoided, success will be emulated. that is how we will find our way out of this. host: gary johnson is with us from new mexico. he will be with us for about 40 more minutes. we will put the phone numbers on the bottom of the screen as we take a look at the libertarian nominee and his race overall. there is a recent gallup poll
to the information we share as a government, as a nation, as a community helps them write their own story of hope and healing. as one gentleman posted on the voices of recovery page at -- getting and living well with a merger program of recovery is the greatest part of my autobiography i have to offer. the data we released today will shine a light on the status of drug use in america, and help l of us see where we are making gains, and where we need to work harder to address these critical public health issues. the matter what the data tells us about substance abuse and the disease of addiction, we release this data during this month to underscore that people can and do recover. as of heard, we are in the 20th year in serving the nation. and the national recovery month is in its 23rd year. this month acknowledges and celebrates recovery from addiction and mental illness, of advances int science -- through evidence based practices and thousands upon thousands of united voices of recovery across the country. recovery has captured an audience and is rallying in nations. about this
care, one on governing and one on the state of government. the role of government, i should say. now, both candidates will be standing at podiums. no strict time limits. each candidate will have two minutes to answer that question and then the rest of the segment will be an open discussion about the topic at hand. so that is how the debate is going to do. aides with the obama campaign say his goal is to deliver his message in a crisp and clear manner. to not seem too long winded as sometimes he has in the past. so that's really his goal and also to make the case about why he thinks he can do a better job in these next four year of turning the economy around and to really give people specifics. as i said, the first lady will be there tonight. it is their 20th anniversary. no time to really celebrate tonight. they say they will do that this weekend. >> quite a way to celebrate. thanks so much. we head tout peter alexander in denver, where mitt romney has been for several days now prepping for the debate this evening. >> you had plenty of sports metaphors in that introduction. we'll giv
comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who writeoff half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% of the people vote for the president no matter what. who -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's secretly recorded remarks into a devastating new ad claiming the gop nominee's words under the families and veterans. >> so my job is not to worry about -- they should take personal responsibility. >> romney two days in a row out to link national security to the nati sluggh recovery. he's seizing on new economic data revising down the 2nd quarter gdp. >> this is not just one quarter. this has been going on now for years. china's growing much faster than we. russia's growing faster than we. our economy needs to be reinvigorated. >> but not all the numbers paint a gloomy picture. the labor department announced it undercounted nearly 400,000 jobs in 2011 meaning that 4.4 million jobs have been created since the president's inauguration. slightly more than the num
in the republican primary mr. governor rick perry. >> it's three agencies of government i when i got there that are gone, commerce, education and the -- what's the third one there? oh,! >> commerce, education and the... >> e.p.a.? >> e.p.a. >> seriously? is e.p.a. what you were talking about? >> nos, nos, we were talking about the e.p.a. needs to be rebuilt. >> can you name the third one? >> the third agency of government i would do away with education, the commerce and let's see... i can't the third one i can't sorry. >> i can't. oops. [ laughter ] >> no, i make fun of him. i may be sitting here later on this hour talking about the third one. peter, help me.
